Trivia: Magic Tree House Thanksgiving on Thursday

Posted by at 11:37 am in Trivia | Permalink

Thanksgiving_on_thursday Yes, it’s true that Thanksgiving is this Thursday — but Thanksgiving on Thursday is ALSO the title of one of the Magic Tree House books by Mary Pope Osborne! (I have been waiting all year to say that.)

If you’re not familiar with the Magic Tree House series, then before I get to the trivia question, I should tell you a little bit about the books: They’re about a tree house. It’s magic. Got it?

Just kidding! Here are the details: Annie and Jack are a brother and sister who discover that the books in their tree house transport them through time and space. They visit lots of different historical destinations, from Ancient Eygpt to the Ice Age to the Civil War. And — surprise, surprise — in Thanksgiving on Thursday, they travel to Plymouth, Massachusetts during the time of the pilgrims.

So, here’s my question for those of you who are familiar with the book: Jack and Annie try to help out with the turkey for the first Thanksgiving, but something goes wrong. What happens?

Leave a comment with your guess, and then check the answer. Have a very happy Thanksgiving! Or as your dinner would say, “Gobble gobble!”

    Jack and Annie try to cook the turkey but it is accidentally burned. Thats ok though because there accually wasn’t any turkey at the first Thanksgiving.

    Oh, I remember! The turkey accidentally fell off the spit into the fire. Jack and Annie thought that they had ruined the very first Thanksgiving by ruining the turkey.
    Not bad for someone who hasn’t read the book since about a year ago, huh? :)

    I haven’t read any of the books from the Magic Tree House series in ages, but I used to love reading them. I think the turkey falls into the fire they’re cooking it over.

    I read that book but it was a LONG time ago so I don’t remember, here is a crazy guess: Albus Dumbledore Apparates into the first Thanksgiving just as they are setting out the turkey and eats it all. Later on they eat EGG NOG instead :)
